CAMRI African and Arab Media conference

Media research to date has largely neglected the fast growing and diverse media audiences in African and Arab countries. Blogs, chatrooms, social networking sites, and the use of SMS indicate that African and Arab audiences are highly active in sending and receiving messages in innovative ways. This conference, organised by the University of Westminster's Communication and Media Research Institute (CAMRI), will explore this activity, taking in the old, the new, and processes of change and transformation. It draws on the combined resources of CAMRI's African Media Series, Arab Media Centre and Audiences Group. It focuses on media use and media users in two overlapping regions, where the culture and politics of former colonial powers have combined with internal influences to shape the audience experience in particular ways.

GSM technology with all its highly interactive services and tools is closely related to the Internet and its growth in last few years has been enormous. It allows viewing the GSM communication space as the new terrain of scientific research. This study examines the way in which religious groups as well as the individuals use the GSM technology (including the service of SMS and MMS).
